It's not too bad of a project. Your CPS (Crankshaft Position Sensor) is located in the engine compartment, front engine area / driver's side, mounted in the engine block above the crankshaft pulley. I've provided a photo below to give you a better idea of what your looking for.

I need some info on - 5c959ad.jpg
To remove the CPS, simply disconnect the wire harness and remove the mounting bolt. From there, the CPS should slide right out.

When installing your new CPS, make sure to check the tip to ensure it came with a new spacer (will be attached to the tip). Thereafter, install the sensor until the spacer lightly touches the sensor ring. Tighten the sensor mounting bolt to approximatley 105 and attach the wire harness.

Help this helps and good luck!

I would just check the wiring going to the sensor on the washer fluid bottle. There could be a loose wire. Once the wire is checked. The only other option is to change out the washer bottle . The sensor is not sold seperately.
